Legionella Legislation - the importance of adhering to it.

 How would a £20k Fine affect your property investment model? 

£20k Fine? No thanks!
For us Landlords there doesn't seem to be a month goes by without us having to take on board and make adjustments to our business to accommodate yet another piece of legislation.

Bonkers or what?

Some of this legislation, I know is bonkers, but the tightening up things to minimise the risk of our tenants becoming exposed and potentially very ill (sometimes fatally) is certainly one thing we must not ignore.

It's serious, very serious.

What if I don’t comply with the new rules?
  • If you fail to carry out the basics listed above, basically causing your tenant to contract the disease you can receive a criminal prosecution and a fine of up to £20,000 per breach; per property. 
If you are using a good agent, they should be upto speed on this matter. But might just be worth putting a call into them to make sure.
